Re: Restart is hard after the winter

I have a lingering doubt over the glowplugs themselves... 20s of heating should be enough to get the engine started. They do have a tendency to age and become less and less effective... if problems persist I would consider replacing them. The price should be reasonable from a Kubota parts supplier (not a marine supplier)
